We hope to see all of you on February 12th for th brand new season of Big Brother!
DICK WINS BB8
I could not be happier that Dick won tonight! He played a great game (even though he screwed up a few times) and he totally deserved it.
During the final episode, the jury was forced to confront the fact that Dick and Daniele had made it to the final two. There was a lot of bitterness and snippy commenting, but eventually they had to make a decision.
America voted for Dick, which meant Eric had to convince the other evicted house guests to vote for Dick to win. That’s not an easy task considering that he personally attacked every single one of them. Still, Eric urged everyone to focus on strategic moves and persuasion. He said that, even though Daniele dominated in competitions (particularly the veto comp with her 5 wins) Dick was able to play a mental game that defeated every single person in his path. Even Amber, who hates Dick, had to say that she thought Dick was the better competitor because he was playing the game for two people, himself and his daughter.
Surprisingly, almost everyone in the house voted for Dick to win, saying that they focused on who played the fame to the fullest. In the end, only Jameka and Jen voted for Daniele to win.
The rest of the evicted house guests were also there on finale night and we got to hear a bit from them. Nick looked hot (as always!) Joe was amusing and kinda made me feel like he got voted out too soon. If I had to pick between him and Dustin, I would have much rather kept Joe in the house because, though he was also arrogant at times, at least he was funny.
Janelle was also in attendance tonight and holding a big sign that said “We trust the Donatos”. She seemed very happy that they were in the final two and very happy that Dick won.
I just want to say a big thank you to anyone who read this blog over the season and a special thank you to Dean for posting so many great comments! Also a big thank you to Keith at BB Chatter for putting a link to this blog on his amazing BB site. I can’t wait to chat with everyone on the boards there next year for BB9. Thanks also to Morty’s TV for their great updates and show recaps. Another thank you to Dingo’s Hamster Watch and to Joker’s Updates for linking to me. You guys are awesome! I love BB because I love the community of viewers who become BB fanatics over the summer.
Thanks again to everyone who read my crazy rants, whether you agreed with me or not!
See you all next year for BB9!
And while we’re waiting, check out Trashwire.com for more reality show write ups, movie reviews, and celebrity gossip.
The most recent results in the Love ‘Em or Leave ‘Em poll on CBS.com show that Dick is America’s favorite player. Hopefully, that means that everyone also picked for the final America’s Player vote. I don’t know if that will help him win the game, but it’d be nice when they reveal the AP twist and everyone realizes that America likes Dick the most. No one else even comes close.
It’s no real surprise that America likes Dick more than Daniele. In the last few episodes, she had been such a whiny bitch to her dad. She keeps telling him to shut up, keeps acting like she’s super sick of him, and says nothing when he tells her he loves her. Clearly, that brat has only used her dad to get to the final two. I’m hoping that her little scheme doesn’t work and she ends up losing the game.
In related news, Dick is also the front runner in the Grand Prize poll on CBS.com. This means that most voters think he will win over Daniele.
The live finale is tomorrow night on CBS. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Dick will win the show. The Donatos are on par with Chill Town as far as the greatest alliances in BB history.
Despite staying out there for almost 8 hours, Dick lost the first part of the HOH competition, leaving me to believe that time might be up for one of the Donatos. He was very upset and looked like he might drop dead after the whole thing. I felt really bad for him because he’s older than everyone else, but he still put up a hell of a fight in that competition. He deserved to win, he just didn’t have the physical ability to do it…. Plus, Zach’s a robot so he probably could have stayed up there until someone had to come in and change his battery.
In the second HOH competition, Dick smoked Daniele in an underwater puzzle solving contest. He took less than half as much time to complete the puzzle, making him a clear winner.
Next he had to face off against Zach in the final, and most important, competition of the season. In the final HOH competition, Dick and Zach were quizzed about what the sequestered jury members said during their time in the jury house. Dick was ahead after the first question, which asked what Amber’s most annoying moment was. Amber answered that seeing Jen cry over her picture was the most annoying moment. Dick answered correctly, putting him in a lead he held on to for the rest of the game.
In the end, he won the final HOH and evicted Zach live on the show tonight.
This leaves Dick and Daniele in the final two! Their alliance is on par with Chill Town because it landed both of its members in the finals. I’m still hoping Dick wins, but I’m so happy that the Donatos pulled it out tonight that I don’t even care which one wins.
I can’t even imagine the jury’s face when they find out that BOTH of the Donatos are the finalists and they HAVE TO vote for one of them to win!!!
Well, it seems that one of the Donatos might end up leaving this week. It was a good run, but the alliance was very one-sided. Dick did all the work, Dani did all the bitching and moaning. Please, oh please let Dick stay and Daniele go this week!
I have no idea what went down, and I guess we won’t know for sure until Sunday, but Dick and Daniele are now on the block! I don’t know if the veto was used or if my original information about Zach’s nominations was incorrect. What the hell is going on?! I haven’t been watching the feeds or BBAD. I’m so out of the loop!
Right now though, it looks like the Donatos are on the block this week. LAME!
I really wanted Dick to win. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that people will be so sick of Dani’s pouting and whining that they’ll send her packing.
More to come when I find more info online somewhere. If you’re looking for breaking BB news, head over to BB Chatter. It’s a great community of BB fans who watch the feeds 24/7 and post screencaps and updates.
Kaysar was on House Calls yesterday and looking good again. Sigh, I miss having him to look at on the live feeds.
Janelle was on the show today and looked gorgeous, as always. I swear that girl is pretty close to physically perfect. So not fair for the rest of us women.
Kaysar’s on all the time (which I love!). And for the guys out there, Janelle (AKA the Angelina Jolie of Big Brother) will be on House Calls again tomorrow.
Anyway, not much else to post. We’ll see what happens after the eviction tonight. (Fingers crossed that Daniele or Dick win HOH so I can be sure they’re not going home this coming week.)
I loved how CBS basically made fun of Amber on this past episode by showing all the times she’s said she could be a model. The ultimate was when they showed a clip of her saying, “I know I could go on top model because I have the face and the hair and the body… and the personality.” This was immediately followed by a shot of her looking not-so-supermodel-slim in her bikini. CBS also had shots of her shoving handfuls of pretzels into her mouth and talking about how she’s going to be on the cover of all the magazines when the show is over.
It reminded be of the Flight of the Conchords song that has the lyrics, “You’re so beautiful, you could be a part-time model, but you’d probably still have to keep your normal job.”
The entire montage on the show was so mean. Downright mean. CBS was totally humiliating her on tv….. but at the same time, it was really funny because Amber lives in her own little world where she’s Gisele Bunchen or the next Oprah.
The sad thing is, when the season is over, I wouldn’t be surprised to see her on the Tyra Banks show or some other daytime gab-fest talking about her life. If horrific role models like Paris Hilton can be rewarded for their stupidity and criminal behavior, I guess Amber should have her shot too.
When we last left off, HOH Jessica had nominated Amber and Zach for eviction this week. Her smarmy little showmance, Eric, won the Power of Veto. Today was the veto ceremony. Eric did not use the veto and the nominations stayed the same. I’m guessing that Amber will go this week because most people think she’s an idiot and America will probably vote to evict her too. Amber seems so out of touch with reality in the house that it would be easy for people to vote her out. On top of that, she’s not really smart enough to process the game, so she probably wouldn’t even have any hard feelings towards Jessica or Eric if they made it to the end. It doesn’t really matter who goes between Zach and Amber, both have skated by for too long in my opinion. The veto was a yawner and everyone is getting along for the most part. If someone from the Jesus alliance was going to be voted out, I’d prefer Jameka because Amber’s idiotic theories make for some funny moments.
In other news, The Power of 10 episode with Danielle and Amber airs on Tuesday. It might be another chance to catch Amber saying some totally stupid stuff on national tv.
The eviction is Thursday and maybe something exciting will happen with HOH.
Until then, we’ll just be bored for the week.
Jessica nominated Zach and Amber
Eric won the Power of Veto
I’m hoping that the nominations stay the same, or that they use the veto to nominate Jameka. That way, they are guaranteed to take out someone from the Jesus alliance. I believe that the America’s Player vote was for Eric to get Amber nominated, and he succeeded. Now, hopefully, America will vote for him to evict her.
At the same time, this would be an ideal time for Jess and Eric to target Dick or Danielle. They would be making two huge enemies in the jury house, but almost everyone else there would probably applaud them for backstabbing the Donatos. If Eric used the veto and they nominated Danielle, they would probably be able to control the vote and only Dick would vote for her to stay. The same goes for Dick… but a lot of people have expressed that they want to be in the final two with Dick because he’s been such a , well, such a dick to everyone.
I would really love for Dick to make it to the final two because I’d be anxious to see if this works like BB2 and the person believed to be the most evil ends up winning the money.
The one glaring difference between this season and BB2 is the sequester house. In BB2, the HGs were allowed to go home and watch all the episodes before they cast their vote for the winner on finale night. Nowadays though, the jury is kept locked up in sequester, which keeps them mentally in the game instead of allowing them to reflect on it from a distance. For that reason, all those people who hated Dick when they were voted out might still hate him on finale night.
I’m just going to keep my fingers crossed that Dick stays this week and (hopefully) makes it to the final two. He’s been a kick ass player this year and he’s playing an adapted version of the infamous Dr. Will strategy. I never thought that could work a second time, but it seems to be going alright for Dick. I’d just like to see another Chill-Town-esque victory this season.

On the show tonight, there was a little segment about Eric and Jessica and it looks like they really are into each other. It all just seems so odd. I mean, neither one is a prize as far as personality, but I’m still surprised that Jessica is into that twitchy little weasel.
As we all know, America voted to have Eric give the Woobie to Jessica and, upon receiving the task, he proclaimed, “We’re practically engaged in the house.” After he gave her the Woobie, they cuddled in her bed for a while.
This is one showmance that I just can’t handle. The thought of Eric and Jess making out on camera brings back nauseating memories of Erica and Boogie from All Stars…… yuck!
Last Night : While Amber and Daniele were out of the house on their “mystery trip,” all hell broke loose in the Big Brother house when Jen took Dick’s cigarettes, crushed them and poured bleach on them (VIDEO) in the SR. Then, Jen goes to the kitchen and makes herself a turkey burger, which she eats followed by an apple, a half pink of cottage cheese, a cucumber and another turkey burger. This is shocking, because Jen is on the slop diet. Jen’s behavior earned her the first ever penalty nomination in US BB history. Next week, Jen will be on the block with the two nominees selected by the HoH. Jen will not be able to compete in the PoV, and no one will be allowed to use the PoV to take her off the block. The alliance of Jessica, Eric, Dick and Daniele figure this is a perfect excuse to evict Jameka this week, and as much as Dick hates to have her around for another week, they are planning to evict Jen next week.
Looks like my prayers may have been answered (no pun intended) and Jameka could be leaving this week! But that’s not all… Morty’s also reported this:
A New Plan: While sitting on the patio, Dick and Zach came up with a plan. Because Jen will be on the block next week, and since it’s a forgone conclusion that everyone will vote to evict Jen [as Dustin was sure that everyone who vote to evict Dick], they think they should throw the HoH contest to Amber. Why Amber? If Amber wins HoH, then the next week she won’t be eligible compete in that HoH contest. This virtually secures, Jessica, Eric, Zach, Dick and Daniele as the final five. Dick is exuberant over this new plan. Dick goes inside to use the bathroom, and Zach, alone says out loud, “It wasn’t your idea, it was mine. You think you came up with it all on your own. You think you’re in charge, but you’re not. I will take you to the end, then I will kick your ass.” (VIDEO)
I’m just really psyched about all these new changes because it’s actually something entertaining… which the show has been lacking for a few weeks. I was really happy when Dustin got evicted for the very same reasons. The look on his face, the total shock, the way that Amber (and to a lesser extent Jameka) had no idea…. it was all totally priceless. Crazy stuff is what makes for good tv. I’m glad to see that things are finally heating up again.

My favorite part was when he said, “Whether you hate Dick or you love Dick, he’s the show at this point.” See! Even Kaysar thinks Dick is what makes the show fun!
If you missed House Calls this afternoon, you can always check out the archives on the CBS official site.
Amber totally ripped Eric a new ass today. As most of us know, Amber told Eric that she’d had two abortions, then lied about having two more abortions to hurt her boyfriend a few years back. It seems that Eric had planned to use that information to blackmail Amber into doing what he wanted in the game. She didn’t take kindly to that idea, so she screamed at him about it.
I hate Amber, but I really hope this blowout seals Eric’s eviction this week. I’m over his weird twitching, his weasel game play, and that one eyebrow that sticks way up whenever he’s in the Diary Room. Go home, Eric!
Why do all these good moments have to happen when I’m at work?!
A lot of shit went down tonight… and of course it had to happen when I wasn’t watching! There were a ton of fights and Dick poured a drink on Jen’s head. Danielle yelled at her dad and Amber cried (big surprise). Anyway, the only thing that I can really show is that Nick gave himself a Mohawk. Here’s some pictures.
I wish Nick would stay because I think this is a sign that he’s ready to fight now. That could be a good thing if he’s still around because it might mean he’ll be brutal with his strategy and that would really make this show interesting again.
On the other hand… Nick shaving his head might mean that he’s gone totally crazy. After all, we have seen this type of thing before.
Let’s just hope that, if he is evicted, he won’t go get some weird tattoos and then beat the shit out of a car with an umbrella.
Joe was evicted last night. I was glad it wasn’t Dick, but I was kind of sad to see him go. Joe’s been pretty entertaining in the house. His scheming was sure to stir things up and his comments were amusing. I also loved his fight with Dustin on the hammock or all the times he flirted with Nick. Oh well, the game must go on. Special thanks to Slykittee from BB Chatter for capturing this “tender” moment.
Kaysar’s been on House Calls a couple times this season, but this time I wasn’t at work, so I actually got a chance to watch most of it. He said if he was in the house, he would form an alliance with Nick (which might be the hottest alliance in BB history) and he wouldn’t target the floaters like he did in BB6. He said a lot of other stuff, but I think I was too busy ogling him like a horny school girl to really pay attention.
Here’s a screencap from the show. You can view full episodes of House Calls on the CBS Big Brother site… and you can click this link to see his appearance on July 12th.
I loved seeing him on, but I’m really missing his facial hair. It makes him look even hotter.
Here he is from July 12th, with the facial hair…
And here he is from today’s show without it
See what I mean? C’mon Kaysar, grow it back!
Last night I realized that I totally have a crush on Nick. Like Hardy and Kaysar before him, he is this year’s uber hottie. Here are a few reasons why I’m hoping Nick wins, or at least makes it to sequester.
Reason 1: He’s got a killer body.
As we all saw during his intro video, Nick’s happy to give America two tickets to the gun show. While he was once listed as a pro football player and now merely as “former football player”, we can tell just by looking at him that he is clearly a dude who has spent some time in a weight room. His hot bod totally reminds me of Hardy from BB2, who just so happened to be one of my favorite players from that season. Maybe it’s the Hardy association that makes me like Nick, but whatever the cause, I’m definitely a fan of Nick’s killer bod.
Reason 2: He’s funny.
Nick’s got a dry sense of humor that makes it hard to tell if he’s joking or being totally serious. He makes wise cracks with a completely straight face and people like Jen can find that difficult to interpret. I remember thinking he was really funny during a conversation he had with Danielle in the hammock during the first week. Zach was there and saying he thought Danielle was the best looking girl in the house, while Nick joked about her being fat and flirtatiously teased her. He’s made a bunch of really funny statements since then, but those crucial early moments made me take notice of his sense of humor.
Reason 3: Everybody loves Nick.
Since the first week in, it seems like practically everyone in the house has developed a crush on him. He flirted with Danielle, but Joe also had a crush on him right away. The fact that almost all the girls in the house think he’s a babe, and a lot of the guys do too is further proof that Nick’s got the goods. Amber has claimed to have a brother-sister relationship with him, despite her flirtatious body language and Jen wants him so bad she started making up lies about him kissing her. He doesn’t just drive the girls and the gay boys crazy, even supposedly straight boys like Eric seem to have a strong attraction to him.
Reason 4: He really cares about Danielle.
Not only does Nick have a crush on this year’s
buxom blonde bombshell, but he seems to really like her as a friend too. Nick’s been adamant about trying to mend her relationship with Dick and he’s very attentive to her when she seems to be feeling down. Last night, she was hanging out in the storage room feeling bummed out when he came in to cheer her up. It’s so sweet. Their relationship isn’t like a lot of other BB shomances because it seems like there’s real emotion at the heart of it. He’s even openly professed his love for her a few times.
Reason 5: He has that cool tattoo.
I’m not quite sure what it says, but I like it. I’m just happy he doesn’t have the typical fratboy, wanna be gangsta tattoo of some phrase in Olde English writing. His tattoo seems pretty detailed and it looks like real body art as opposed to just some cursive letters on his arm. In the long history of really cut guys with tattoos in Big Brother, I would have to say his is the best. A lot can be said for a cool tattoo.
Reason 6: He looks good in anything.
Lately it seems like every time I see Nick, he’s rocking some different look. Almost every season, the hot dudes in the house get bored and start messing around with their look in search of something fun to do. Usually, the results are disastrous. In Nick’s case, it seems like everything he puts on looks great on him. That’s the mark of a true hottie. The other day he had a fedora on, which normally annoys me, but it looked super good on him. Also, I saw him with his hair slicked back and some aviator shades on. While it reminded me a little bit of the Kevin-Federline-types, it was still really cute.
Reason 7: Did I mention he’s hot?!
Seriously, Nick’s got to be the best looking guy in the house this season. I dig his personality, he’s cut, he’s got a really cute smile and the soul patch compliments his lips. I can already tell he’s going to be the Kaysar of this season, at least for me. I just hope his sticks around a little longer than Kaysar did.
This week so far…
Jen is HOH
She nominated Dick and Danielle (because she’s stupid and ugly and she’s super jealous of Danielle… but that’s just my opinion)
Danielle won POV
The house was trying to get Jen to replace Danielle with Joe or Zach, but now it looks like Amber will go up instead of Danielle, putting her against Dick.
It seems that Dick will be voted out, but it’s only Monday so things could change before the eviction on Thursday.
Oh, and as a result of the POV competition, Jen has to wear a red leotard for the rest of the week. Awesome. She’s so self-conscious anyway that this should really drive her insane.
Ok, so I didn’t really post this on the 12th, but Kaysar was on House Calls and looking hot!
He and Gretchen talked about Jen’s ego and compulsive lying. It was pretty funny to hear. Here’s a screen cap. Click here to go to the July 12th episode of House Calls.
Here’s a sneak peek of the new BB house. Apparently the theme is Alice in Wonderland. I think it looks really nice. I love the colors they’ve used, definitely a lot better than some of the past seasons. It looks a lot more detailed than ever before. More pictures over here
Years ago, CBS debuted a new reality series called Big Brother. Back then, the cast was older, the show was more interactive, high-speed internet access was rare, and the live-feeds were tiny, grainy images of a chicken coop for most of the day.
Since then, the show has evolved into a summer guilty pleasure with eye-candy abound. Though there have been new twists in the game (the Power of Veto), new architecture in the house (the addition of a second story and HoH suite) and new houseguests to compete (hotties like Kaysar from BB6 and BB7), the show remains the most real of reality tv.
Unlike most reality shows, which are completely at the mercy of their editors, Big Brother offers something different: a live internet feed from inside the house. This allows viewers to watch all the plotting, strategizing, and back-stabbing that takes place during an average day in the house as it’s happening. These live feeds are what make the show so much better than other “reality” programs like Survivor or The Real World.
Big Brother also has one of the most dedicated fan communities on the web. BB fans are up at all house, watching the feeds, taking screen caps, summarizing any updates, and discussing their favorite alliances. While it may not exactly be Monday Night Football, fans of this show are more into it than any die-hard arm-chair-quarterback.
I’ve been a fan of Big Brother since the first season and I only missed one episode due to a huge storm that passed through my neighborhood and knocked out the power.
Last year, I started a blog for Big Brother All-Stars, my dream season, featuring some of my favorite players from seasons past. That blog became pretty popular, and I’ve decided to go for it again this year with Big Brother 8.
This blog will feature updates, commentary, links and even a few screencaps or YouTube videos from this season and maybe even from past seasons too.
Keep checking back here to see what’s cookin’ in the BB house!
